5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We received a lovely welcome, with helpful advice on where to eat. The room was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed including DVDs and laundry facilities. One of the best lodges that we stayed in.

We stayed here for one night with our two children. We were in a large 2 bedroomed suite which was perfectly comfortable. Whilst it is not luxurious and some things could do with a little updating like the reddish coloured net curtains which just looked really dirty, the suite was very clean and tidy and an effort had been made...

Thanks for your review. We do, however, feel the need to respond to your comment about the “net” curtains. They are, in fact, coloured sheer curtains that were recommended by an interior design consultant to tone in with the drapes and add colour to the décor. All sheers have been recently cleaned in keeping with the high standard of presentation... More

Courtyard style motel with very comfortable and well equipped rooms. Warm welcome and helpful advice on restaurants and things to see and do. The motel is located out of the town centre but has two good restaurants within walking distance.

Could not fault the motel - very clean, neat and tidy. Service was excellent - Ian was so helpful. Free wifi. Bed and shower excellent. Would thoroughly recommend this motel and will definitely stay there again.

The accommodation was clean and comfortable. Glad there is a small kitchen area to prepare porridge for my 1+ yr old. Ian was helpful as he also recommended us a place for dinner. We had a lovely stay.

The motel is very clean, neat and tidy. The owner Ian is very helpful. As we arrived pretty late, around 6pm. He gave us very good tips on where we can go for a nice dinner and where is the best spot to see the sunset (if you like to know, remember to ask him :)), and where's the best... More

What sets this motor lodge apart is really the manager's attention to service and the needs of travellers. Apart from providing generous complimentary wifi, the manager Ian recommended a great restaurant just down the road, and other places to go. He really takes pride in what he does, and believes in looking after his customers, in keeping with his belief... More

The hotel is on the main road into town (from the east) near the brewery and a supermarket is also close by. The owner was very friendly on arrival and gave me some good tips for places to see. Make sure you visit the Pancake Rocks 40kms North of Greymouth. The drive north along the coast is spectacular. The hotel... More

Gables is a perfect little place for a couple nights stay. Ian was a great host and gave us all the information we needed! A lot of space in the room, awesome kitchen, and bed was comfy. Say hello to Duke, their lovely Golden Retriever Dog who is very very friendly. Its only a few minutes drive from the main... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2014

In my experience, New Zealand motels are of a high standard and are generally good value for money. This property was no exception. From the friendly welcome to the clean and comfortable unit, everything about this place was very good (except the weather but I can't blame the motel for that!) The motel is on the main road but was... More
